As the name indicates, this is a savory recipe, not a sweet one. Knowing that, and intending it to accompany red beans and rice, this recipe came out great for me. I had only a small (approx 8 oz) can of creamed corn, so I added about 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup more of buttermilk to make up for it. I was concerned about the consistency of the batter--it was about as thick as cooked cream of wheat--but the muffins rose up nicely and are not dense. Given others' complaints about saltiness, since I was using salted butter I reduced the added salt to a dash, but it could actually use a little more. Perhaps 1/2 tsp if using salted butter is the happy medium. I put in half a 4.75 oz can of green chilis to give it zing, and topped each one with a bit of shredded cheddar cheese to get a crackly, flavorful top. This made exactly four dozen mini muffins. Though they came out of the metal mini-muffin tins crispier, even those baked in the silicone mini-muffin pan have a satisfying texture, chewy on the outside and velvety on the inside.
